Care Instructions

Choose a site that is in full sun and has plenty of room for the ramblers to grow. The soil should be a well-draining, sandy loam with a pH of 5.5-6.5. If you lack an area with sufficient drainage, plan on growing blackberry bushes in a raised bed. Water regularly, providing an inch of water per week depending upon weather conditions.
